Description
The British Library
A compelling collection of hidden gems of British crime writing, republished from the superlative collection of the British Library. Miraculous Mysteries: a congenially cunning collection of 16 locked-room and other ‘impossible’ crime mysteries. Supernatural assailants, invisible killers and disappearing train drivers, plus disappearances from radio studios and a murder timed to the minute: an entertaining mix of head-scratching tales from the 1890s, ‘golden’ inter-war period through to the early 1960s. Drawing on early exponents of these intricate and cerebral puzzle forms, the anthology includes Arthur Conan Doyle’s tale ‘The Lost Special’ from 1898, plus short stories by G.K. Chesterton, Dorothy Sayers, Mary Allingham and many other less well-known but equally teasing authors. Includes ‘Beware of the Trains’ by Edmund Crispin, ‘Death at 8:30’ by Christopher St John Sprigg and ‘The Broadcast Murder’ by Grenville Robbins.
